What’s new in the Sony PSP-3000? A brighter screen, a built-in microphone. Oh, and a horrible interlacing defect. Good upgrade.
Users on Sony’s official PlayStation forums are complaining that the new screen found in the PSP-3000 causes games to suffer from severe graphical defects, including interlacing issues and jaggies. When you plop down $200 on a new toy you don’t exactly expect to run into these issues.

Sony relayed to Joystiq that it’s “looking into this” so it shouldn’t be too long before this is addressed in full.
